Burlington and Hamilton headache. It is a condition many
people experience. Cervicogenic and
tension-type headaches are two of the more often
talked about types. The cervicogenic headache is linked to issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints.
The tension-type headache is related to the
muscles of the neck generated by stress or odd
head positioning. Both headache forms are responsive
to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at
Spinal Care Clinic.
SOURCE OF TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE: Neck Muscle, Stress,
Tension type headache is noted as
the second most common health concern globally. A new review of published studies for its treatment
explained that manual joint mobilization techniques, supervised
physical therapy, acupuncture, psychological care, and patient education were
as beneficial for reducing headache frequency, improving
quality of life, lessening pain intensity, and lowering
stress symptoms. (1) Spinal Care Clinic welcomes Burlington and Hamilton tension-headache
sufferers as well as their fellow cervicogenic headache sufferers.
SOURCE OF HEADACHE: Cervical Joint
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients want to know why they have a headache. A recent
study described how researchers utilized diagnostic
block testing to pinpoint the cervical spine joint source of the
headache. Overall, the C2-3 level was the most frequent
source. In patients whose principal complaint was headache
over neck pain, the C2-3 was the source for 62%, C1-2 for 7%,
and C3-4 for 6%. For patients whose neck pain was worse
than the headache, C2-3 was the source for 42%, lower cervical joints for 18%,
and C3-4 for 7%. (2) Not that every Burlington and Hamilton headache sufferer
must experience this type of testing to be helped, but the results were interesting for healthcare
providers to aid diagnose and treat headache patients more beneficially.
MANUAL TREATMENT FOR HEADACHE
In a review of published clinical trials, researchers stated
that spinal manipulation was used often
to manage cervicogenic headache. Spinal manipulation was effective, provided
superior, small, short term benefits for reducing pain,
headache frequency, and related disability compared with other manual treatment.
(3) One relieving treatment referred to as SNAGs (sustained natural
apophyseal glides) has been explained in the medical literature.
In a placebo vs SNAG study, researchers explained how SNAGs
were good for pain reduction and neck disability decrease
as well as range of motion improvement for women with cervicogenic headache.
